Will Damp Effect My Health?
Damp cannot directly affect your health but damp can cause mould. Mould is the thing that will end up making you ill. Mould spores latch onto damp areas as it needs moisture to grow. If you have damp in your home, you’re more likely to see patches of mould starting to grow. Mould can cause a range of problems when it comes to your health. Mould releases spores that are able to pass through the lining of your lungs.
When we talk about damp, we’re talking about the moisture that’s in your home. It’s the conditions that grow because of it that will end up making you ill. Mould is defined as a furry growth of fungi that comes in many forms. The moisture levels we see in a home that has damp are much higher than normal. It’s this moisture that allows the growth & reproduction of mould in your home.
One of the most common strains of mould we see is Aspergillus. This strain is usually present in most homes in the UK. This mould (if inhaled) is known to cause coughing, sneezing & mild irritation of the lungs. Aspergillus is able to develop into black mould which shouldn’t be taken lightly. Black mould is known to cause nausea, vomiting & even bleeding from the lungs & nose after long exposure.
The list of health effects doesn’t sound like it could be caused by mould, which is part of the issue. Mould is just so unassuming that we never think about how bad it can affect us.
How Can I Stop Damp?
Stopping damp isn’t as easy as just opening a window and airing a room out. This may help reduce the signs of damp, but this won’t solve the issue. Damp is caused by deep-rooted issues, often located in the structure of the building. Structural faults that let excess water in can’t just be solved overnight. It needs to be surveyed, identified, removed & then repaired.
